2 Chronicles 1:10 10 Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours?”
You have 10 seconds to answer this question from God, “Ask! What shall I give you?” What would your request be?
Solomon was asked by God, “Ask! What shall I give you?” As you read the ‘rest of the story’ Solomon requested wisdom to “govern this great people”. He knew he had a huge task before him.
In a world growing more complicated by the hour we desperately need God’s wisdom and knowledge. I would have never thought we would need wisdom for an issue like medical ethics but with cloning and other crazy stuff a growing reality we desperately need wisdom. The social issues of our day have grown with increasing intensity. We need wisdom and knowledge from God to deal with people whose social morals are not in keeping with scripture. They don’t even read or believe the words of scripture. We have never seen the culture wars that we see today and we can’t manage any of the cultural divides that are growing without God’s wisdom and knowledge and understanding.
As Christians we must have the wisdom and knowledge of God so that our light of life in Christ Jesus can shine brightly in the world around us. Some don’t want out light to shine but regardless that little light of ours should shine like a beacon on a tall hill.
Father, we humbly bow before you this day in desperate need of wisdom and knowledge for life this day…fill us we pray so that we can be YOUR witnesses…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
